Careers Information for Parents and Guardians

There many ways you can support your child in preparing for their next steps, whether that’s going to university, straight into the workplace or an apprenticeship. You can keep up-to-date with all our careers news and information via our regular careers newsletters. 

  • To help your child find out more about their chosen career path, or to find inspiration as to what they can do after their course, our Labour Market Information page is a great resource. It offers an overview of careers nationwide, helping you to navigate the careers market and the breadth of opportunities available.

Careers in the Curriculum

As part of student's personal development sessions during their six-week induction, they take part in a careers activity to help understand the role of the careers service within the college.
